Recently I had the opportunity to finally sample a branded cigar that is readily available in my market, but typically supplied from different countries in Central America (editor's note: non-Cuban Romeo y Julietas, some of them are reviewed here). Typically these smokes have been dry, grainy and more akin to puffing on a pile of sawdust than a true fine quality cigar. I am happy to say that the Cuban Romeo y Julieta rose to the occasion and has offered a stout cigar with plenty of taste that should satisfy most any avid Cubano lover and beginner alike. It is a nice smoke at an economical price for a Cuban.

Since the release of the Hoyo Petit Robusto in 2004, the Petit Robusto size has proven a great success for Habanos. Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas (Serie D No. 5 and No. 6) and Trinidad also jumped on the wagon, with similar variations but same characteristics. A short, stout cigar that combines a short smoking time with the coolness and comfort of a larger ring gauge. The response was great, so it was only a matter of time before another brand came up with a petit robusto.

The Romeo y Julieta Petit Churchill, released in 2012, is a classic petit robusto, measuring 4'' in length with a 50 ring gauge. Initially available in dress boxes of 25, 3-packs of tubos were to follow in 2013. My Petit Churchill had some time to rest after the long trip from Cuba and I am really looking forward to see what it has to offer.

I spotted this beautiful stick at Casa Fuster in Barcelona and, of course, I just had to pick up a sampler of these classic smokes. Even though I'm not a fan of the Romeo y Julieta brand, I had high expectations for this petit torpedo, mostly because of its age. 7 years (at least, because limited edition leaves are supposed to be aged prior to the release) seemed sufficient to me for the cigar to start shining, so I didn't wait long before firing one up. In fact, I was so impatient that I torched it 20 minutes after the purchase in a café nearby.

The Romeo y Julietta Churchill is as classic as classic gets. It is quite popular amongst occasional and seasoned smokers. A pre-1960 release, it has been in vogue since then. As some of you know, I do not hold the Romeo y Julieta marca in my heart but I was advised by a real hardcore aficionado that the new batches were up to par with the Churchill heyday.

Please welcome DrFever, our newest contributor. He starts with a review of the Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill, a well-known Cuban robusto.

This Cuban cigar comes in at just under 5 inches in length (4.8” to be exact) with a ring gauge of 50. One of my preferred cigar sizes.

This particular sample came from one of my 25 count boxes with a box code of April 2012. It is a fairly young cigar but I have found that these cigars do smoke well fairly young. I have been smoking these cigars since 2007, a year after their official 2006 release. In the past I have picked up some single tubes of these but this box was brought back to me by a vacationing neighbour while travelling to Cuba.

Romeo y Julieta Prince of Wales is an early 1970’s release discontinued in 2002. This was a gift from a fellow aficionado at the last Montreal Winter Herf that we help running. Let me say this right off the bat, I don’t like Romeo y Julieta as a marca. I didn’t try every one of them but I have no plans to do so. A cigar that’s 14 years old deserves a try though so here are my thoughts in a more condensed format than usual.

Today, Ray_I reviews a cheap machine-made Cuban, Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos. Enjoy!

My BOTL, you know how it is, the seductive siren song of the Cuban cigar. How many times have you had friends over and there is that one guy… that guy who doesn’t smoke much but “just has to try a Cuban”, the guy who wears you out till relenting you part with one of your favorite sticks only to see him smoke only half of it… a travesty… that is the journey that led me to the Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos at as low as $60 for a box of twenty five; I thought, what the heck, maybe this is how I can smoke a Cuban cigar everyday.

Summer has never been complete for me without the presence of a glowing campfire. Maybe that explains my affinity to cigars as well but I digress. Recently, the wife, in-laws and I decided to have the 2010 summer initiation of their fire pit. After getting it cleaned, lit and stabilized I found myself fully relaxed, tranquilly looking out across a golden field behind their home. Deciding that it was the perfect setting for a special cigar I opened my humidor and set eyes upon a gift from a fellow BOTL and my next adventure; a 1998 Romeo y Julieta Cazadores.
